Destination: Cusco – Rainbow Mountain – Cusco


PALCCOYO RAINBOW MOUNTAIN CUSCO has a rich-colored soil due to the minerals in it, is located on the way to the sacred mountain of Ausangate, passing by a vivacious green valley, populated by welcoming communities of mountain farmers. Rainbow mountain is 5,035m/ 16,520ft high and getting there it’s an exciting experience you will not want to miss it if hiking in the Andes is your thing!


Trip to Palccoyo: Our Starting Point

Pick you up from the lobby of your hotel at 5:00 hours. It is about a 4-hour drive in our private transportation, during which we will pass through traditional villages and see some amazing views of the Andes. When we reach the trail head for this hike, we will begin the hike from Palccoyo (altitude: 4790m/15710ft).

From here, it will be a half to 1 ½ hour slightly uphill hike to reach the famous Palccoyo Rainbow Mountain. Along the way, you will enjoy amazing views of the Andes, glacial peaks, red mountains, rocky hills, and traditional llamas and alpacas grazing along the valley. As you reach the summit of the mountain, you will be able to spot some Andean wildlife. This is the only place in Cusco where you can sometimes see wild Vicuñas. Vicuñas are in the same family as llamas, although they are smaller. Their wool is the most expensive wool in the world.

Rainbow Mountain

Once we arrive at the top of Palccoyo Rainbow Mountain, you will have enough time to absorb the majesty of the red mountains that surround this area. You will also see amazing views of the valleys and Ausangate Glacier Peak in front of you. Ausangate is the tallest mountain of the Cusco region (just under 6402m/21000ft) and is part of the Cordillera Vilcanota Range.

After taking a few amazing pictures and soaking in the views (perhaps we will even see a few condors floating on the air currents), we will begin our descent with a half to 1 ½ hour downhill hike. We will start our return trip back to Palccoyo to take our private transportation back to Cusco.
